Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to send a note to tell you how nice the home is. You have done

a beautiful job in decorating the home. It is much more than we expected.

We have stayed at several VRBO rentals and I must say that this is the best.

You have made our stay and time with our family very special with your attention to detail. Thank you and we hope you have a nice holiday season.

Spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We loved it.

The house is beautiful, clean and spacious. The owner is great to deal with and made sure we had everything we needed. We visited the area for a wedding, our family was so impressed with the house, everyone wanted to hang out with us. Lower level has a bedroom, children's playroom,TV, fireplace, card table, and bar area, main floor was master suite with TV, kitchen, dining room, living room and sun room. Upstairs two bedrooms.

Locating the street would be difficult without gps. We arrived just as the leaves colors were peaking.

It takes a little over half hour to drive up into the mountains, grandfather mountain, blowing rock. I cannot say enough about this house. Amazing

we will definitely plan another stay here.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

The house was great, absolutely beautiful view! It was very convenient for our needs. I would suggest you put dishes & silverware downstairs and the carpet needs cleaning.

Beautiful Views, Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

You walk in and the view from the living area is simply breathtaking. And, it only gets better from there. Huge home with lots of sleeping options. Kitchen was stocked better than usual and the closeness to Hickory is a plus. Overall a wonderful place

Beautiful, comfortable home! Excellent value.

  • 5 of 5

As many reviewers said, the pictures don't do it justice! Very clean and comfortable home with plenty of space for the whole family.

We had three generations to accommodate for a week of adventures (hiking, rafting, etc) leading up to a family wedding nearby. We could not have designed a better home for everyone.

The bedrooms are spacious, beds and linens very comfortable, and the view was breathtaking. Barbara was very accommodating, as well.

If you need a place to stay in this area, you can't go wrong. Even smaller groups will find the value far superior to a hotel.
